European Meningococcal Epidemiology in Real Time (EMERT)

Please note that EMERT-II is now up and running and can be accessed at

EMERT-II collects data about the strains causing meningococcal disease throughout Europe in real time. Participating reference laboratories are requested to submit details of all isolates causing disease enabling data to be shared for comparison.

The EMERT-II project has been set up as a private dataset within the PubMLST Neisseria database. This enables the data to be analysed in the context of global public data. This replaces the original EMERT database and supports the uploading of whole genome assemblies, from which molecular typing information will be automatically extracted.

More details can be found at the EMERT-II site.
